Copyright For Communicators

A three-hour seminar outlining everything communicators need to know about copyright

With companies creating ever more content as they pursue their marketing and communication strategies, it’s more important than ever for those working in these areas to understand the basics about intellectual property. What is covered by copyright and why? Who owns copyright? How do you legally make use of copyright protected materials? And how do you enforce your own IP rights? This three-hour seminar explains all the basics.


• An introduction to the kinds of content protected by copyright.

• A guide to copyright ownership and copyright terms.

• The key copyright controls – and when and why you need to get permission.

• The ins and outs of content licensing.

• Enforcing your IP rights – the basics of copyright infringement.


• Anyone working in PR who regularly creates or commissions original content, or who utlises music, video, photography or other imagery.
